The Association “Rukije un Raggio di Sole” was founded in January 2010. It was named after a courageous Albanian woman, Rukije Muhametaj, who was hospitalized for a long period of time in the Orthopoedic Oncology Department, led by Prof. Roberto Biagini.

Rukije left a clear and profound message on which we have based our Association on: “The relationship that one has with a person who has faced the same path and has been cured cannot have this same relationship with any other!”.

For this reason, volunteers of the Association offering their help in the wards are exclusively ex- skeletal muscle cancer patients. We believe that testimoning one’s personal experience and new life values acquired offer t maximum strength necessary to confront and comfort to those who must face and fight the onset of an oncological illness.

Our activities include:
- Providing personal assistance to patients and families, informing them of cancer patients’ rights, provide practical and logistical information, request support from the institutes;
- Gathering people, patients and ex-patients together and participate in the group, enriching the Association with their wealth of experience and knowledge;
- Creating opportunities to meet up with the families and friends of the Association in order to share and highlight issues and specific solutions not only from a patient’s perspective but from other points of view.

- Orthopaedic Oncology, Chair Prof. Roberto Biagini (fifth floor, orange path)
